For the third consecutive year West Chester Township has received the Auditor of State’s Award with Distinction.
The award, given by Ohio Auditor Dave Yost, is based on completion of an audit of the entity’s records.
Trustees thanked Ken Keim, finance and information technology director, and his staff for their work.
The township completed nearly 3,500 financial transactions in 2012 and had 35 separate funds with expenditures totaling nearly $56.6 million.
“West Chester Township takes great pride in exercising fiscal responsibility and integrity in maintaining high standards in all matters, including financial accounting and budgetary practices,” said Judi Boyko, township administrator.
The township has also received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for 11 consecutive years. That award is given by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada, based on the township’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.
For the past three years West Chester Township has maintained a AAA bond rating from Moody’s. The rating has allowed the township to borrow money at a lower interest rate.
Officials received the award this week from Christa Criddle, the regional liaison for the state auditor’s office.
